Inland Empire Community Newspapers • July 21, 2011 • Page A7 Inlandia shines light on local literary voice who live or work in the region, have a distinctly local voice, and have a critically acclaimed body of work. Recently the creation of an audio version of the original Inlandia publication included interviews with some of the authors. Accord- ing to Mitchell-Wilson, the com- mon thread from their works and comments was the climate and landscape of the region, particu- larly the desert and the mountains. Much of the literature historically has also been somewhat dark. “Life was, and continues to be, a little challenging here,” said Mitchell-Wilson. However, the literature also em- phasizes the beauty of the region. In fact much of it takes on a pro- conservation tone of natural land- marks.
